I've been using Linux for longer than I can remember. Over those years I have written a number of "top 5" lists for various publications.
So I thought it would be fun to share with the Ghacks readers my "top 5 top 5s". I'll give the category and a short description of each entry in the list. Hopefully you will find something new or something you had forgotten. With that said, let's get to the lists.
Top 5 distributions
Top 5 applications
Let's not pick nits and divide into categories. Let's just see who bubbles up to the very tip-top.
Top 5 desktops
You'll never see any favoritism in this category. Will you?
Top 5 commands
Top 5 places to get help with Linux
Do you have a top 5 that relates to Linux? If so, share it with your Ghacks readers.
